Tuesday, or “Tiwesdæg” in Old English, is named for the German god Tyr.

Why the debate? There’s a respiratory plague going around, and the doctors are telling us to wear surgical or cloth masks when out in public and congregating. You have an opinion? Did your own research? Think supernatural sky god/father will protect you because you like your version of his many books or scrolls? Is your first name “Doctor”?

Wear the damn mask. If you don’t want to…

There are dozens and dozens of new interments at Calvary Cemetery, and thousands more spread out all over the country. Want to listen to a guy who went bankrupt owning a casino, went bankrupt with an airline, a tie company, a steaks company, and a real estate company who is telling you to take malaria drugs? Ok.

I’ve got a great investment opportunity for you, which is a bridge in Brooklyn…

Wear the mask, for your kids. Wear the mask, for our country. Wear the mask, so we can get back to some semblance of normal life and put this interval behind us.

Or don’t. It’s not like the Antonine Plague was the actual event which began the decline of the Roman Empire, or that the Justinian Plague caused the end of the Byzantine Period. They didn’t know about the germ theory of disease, like we do, but because of the Justinian Plague, the Constantinopolitan armies were unable to keep the Turk at bay. The Turks then set up Sharia Law…

Note: I’m writing this and several of the posts you’re going to see for the next week at the beginning of the week of Monday, August 3rd. My plan is to continue doing my solo photo walks around LIC and the Newtown Creek in the dead of night as long as that’s feasible. If you continue to see regular updates here, that means everything is kosher as far as health and well being. If the blog stops updating, it means that things have gone badly for a humble narrator.

  1. Mitchell Waxman. …God is not to be mocked!
    As A Jewish Man, study His word! Count on His Love for You and take Pride in Your Wonderful Heritage. Contemplate the Magnificent Privilege of Moses whose face was so transfigured by God’s Holy Light that no one could look upon Him when He was unveiled!

    I think that You’re a Great Guy and I appreciate your work. “Sky God” is Everyone’s God despite our different traditions of Honoring Him.
    Yours is the Original! If I saw you Crossing
    Queens Boulevard and a truck was bearing down on You, I would certainly yell a warning!
    That’s what I’m doing now……only the consequences are more serious. ….Eternal!
    And ask HIM for what You need….He Hears
    You and is waiting.

      • Thanks, George. ….As I promised I have kept You, Mitch and Katherine W. in my prayers.
        Many people don’t realize that even an exasperated “Oh God”! while lookng up to heaven …is a prayer! Even if you’re not “religious”, you are unconciously appealing to whom Your Soul knows is there. This is human nature, despite the ‘philosophers’ who argue otherwise.
        When ‘searching’ for God, it’s always better to “follow the script” which throughout the ages has evidenced the most dramatic results. Holy Scripture .
        You’re not talking to a ‘machine’ or a figment of your imagination. God knows your every thought. No one however, knows the Mystery of God’s Will or how or when He will reveal Himself to you.
        The most important factor is that you desire to have a relationship.
        “Seek and you will find, Ask and you will be answered, Knock and it will be opened unto you”.
        I got nowhere until I did all three of these things.
        Remember that the stairway to heaven is really a knotted rope. Falls are frequent. Persevere. Your first mystical experience will astound you. …when you
        realize the Creator of the entire universe has acknowledged You, personally.
        Peace, Joy and God Bless You, Brother!
